The Dixie School District Board in San Rafael has voted to change its name.
Critics say the name is linked to the confederacy and slavery.
The majority of board members say they support changing the name.
But they voted against it in February because they wanted more community input.
The issue has pitted parents against each other in weeks of testy online exchanges.
The change would cost the district about $40,000.
A new name has not been decided, but any name change would not go into effect until the summer.
